Business/Team Volunteering

TSL Kirklees Volunteering provides a free service, matching businesses/organisations with volunteering opportunities.

Many businesses offer their employees an opportunity to volunteer in work time.

This is sometimes known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Social Value or Employer Supported Volunteering. Volunteering individually or as a team can be a great way to support your local community and give your employees a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Many businesses share their time and skills with a charity through a team away day or team building experience with colleagues.

You can view and register your interest in a Team Volunteering opportunity below:

We can also help if you would like to fundraise for a charity/community group, collect donations or share your expertise or resources. Talk to us:  email volunteer@tslkirklees.org.uk tel. 01484 519053 / 07776588691

About the Organisation

Oxfam’s Online Shop is based The Northern Logistics Centre, Batley, a warehouse which houses both Oxfam’s Online and Festival Shop operations, as well as, a textile sorting plant, and transport and distribution offices. The Oxfam Northern Logistics Centre uses donated clothing and textiles to raise vital funds to help Oxfam fight for a fairer world without poverty! We are the only charity in the UK to have our own sorting plant, meaning no Oxfam donation goes to landfill!

All our volunteering roles are based within the Online Shop, which launched in 2007. We were the first online charity shop in the UK and remain the largest to this day, showcasing a broad range of fabulous textile donations to a worldwide audience; from high-end to high-street, vintage to contemporary.
